Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE)

What is the FSSE?

At WMU, we participate in the FSSE every four years (new policy implemented in 2013) which was designed to complement the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). This instructional staff version (for faculty, instructors, and graduate students who teach) focuses on:

  • Instructional staff perceptions of how often students engage in different activities.
  • The importance instructional staff place on various areas of learning and development.
  • The nature and frequency of instructional staff -student interactions.
  • How instructional staff organize their time, both in and out of the classroom.

The information learned from our faculty, instructors, and graduate students can then be used to identify areas of strength, as well as aspects that we may decide warrant attention. The results are intended to be a catalyst for productive discussions related to teaching, learning and the quality of our undergraduates' educational experience at WMU.
